The talk will trace the origins of the so-called Silk Road, highlighting its importance as the first major transcontinental route of commercial, political and cultural exchange. This route of travel and communication is over 2000 years old and remains as important today as it was at its beginnings. The talk will address the earliest interactions between continental Asia and the Eastern Mediterranean and all that stood in between.
